View Full Version : Chris Stewart - what happened?

02-15-2011, 09:58 AM
He's looked nothing like himself since returning from injury - no points, no pims, bad +/-, less shots, no PPP. Dude just dropped him in my league, is there any chance he starts to pick it up again or is this season a write-off for him?

it's my fault, i traded away ward for him right when he came back. im cursed.

Injury surely has something to do with it, but that's not all. Colorado has lost 9 of the 12 games he's been back for, the whole team is struggling. 7 of the 9 losses have been consecutive, and 8 games they haven't even scored 3 goals. He'll bounce back but was over achieving before.

do you think he was overachieving last year too? I think stewart is a 30 goal scorer that gets lots of PIM's. Gold IMO maybe I am daydreaming but I thought before the season started he was going to play very well. Seems like you may be right with his injury not 100% healed.

No, just when he was over ppg earlier this season. 70-75 points with 30-35 goals is certainly achievable I think, and actually now that he's done nothing the last few weeks he's basically right on pace for that. I don't think he'll ever hit 80+ more than maybe once or twice though.

I think he's a great buy low candidate right now.

I wouldn't hesitate to drop Cole for him in your keeper league.

Pretty common to see slowdowns after a broken hand.

In a keeper I would make room for him strait away

See stats for Datsyuk after he came back, he's been great. I think the whole Avs team is struggling, and it doesn't help them that Douche just went out with a broken hand.
